RE: I may have fried my Jack Antenna Please help

As stated NO LOAD voltage is always higher unless you have a really good regulated power supply. I doubt you fried the Jack. Many reasons for "NO SIGNAL" could be a bad cable, low signal strength, if you are close to a station and know for sure you should have a signal you will have to check the voltage at the antenna to verify the wiring. Not sure on your set up but do you have a switch ANT/CABLE in the wrong position?

RE: 3 prong 50 amp plug to 4 prong 50 amp ????

I think what GoneCamping is talking about is faking the coach into thinking power is coming from the generator when in fact he will plug into the CG 50amp outlet. Now comes the problem how do you wire the 4 prong CG side to the 3 prong RV side. There is NO provision for L1 & L2 in the RV only L1 - N and G so it can't be done the way he is attempting to do it. What is not understood by GoneCamping is the rear AC is not fed through the 3 prong generator plug the 3 prong plug is electrically connected to the 30amp circuit breaker on the side of the generator and goes to the main coach 120V circuit breaker. The 20 amp circuit breaker on the gen set is wired to the rear AC unit. The generator puts out 1 120VAC 30amp output for the main coach and a separate 120VAC 20amp output for the rear AC unit. It is NOT 220VAC the 120V outputs are IN PHASE so the do not add up to 220VAC.

RE: 1995 P30 ECM Faults (454 TBI)

Had the same problem was a bad gasket under the throttle body. Research showed this to be a problem that will throw a lot of codes. One test is with the engine running spray some WD-40 at the base of the TB and the engine will speed up. That should not happen. I think it was a $12 fix.

RE: Class A and boats

If you have never done it practice backing up straight in a church parking lot. You will be amazed at how fast the boat responds to a very little steering input the boat will jackknife in a heartbeat.

RE: Kohler generator 7cm21 Holiday Rambler

You can Google 7cm21 and find manuals. parts manual look at this parts manual. Scroll down and I think the spring you are talking about is shown connected.

RE: Kohler generator 7cm21 Holiday Rambler

Sounds like a fuel problem. I have the service manual in Adobe format but don't know how to send it by RV forum. You might find it on Google for download. I think I can send it by e-mail if you pm me you email address.

RE: TomTom Horrible Routing

What I do, preview the route on Google maps that the GPS has determined I need to follow. Verify how you really want to go then set as many way points in the Tom Tom as needed to force the GPS to go your way. I use a Garmin but it is the same procedure.

RE: be careful with led replacement bulbs

You need to check the voltage at the light sockets, incandescent bulbs only want 12VDC +/- connections polarity make no difference. LED bulbs want 12VDC with the correct polarity (+ to + / - to -) they can be shorted and burned out with a reverse polarity. The center connection must be positive, the side connection must be the negative connection.

RE: Warning-using slider type A-B switch

Well I use them and keep a spare on hand knowing they can and do fail. So far I haven't had a failure in the RV but that would be my 1st consideration if no TV. They do pass dc voltage however, I don't think the dish dc has enough current to burn the contacts.

RE: Will Single A/C cut it?

I have the same 50 amp setup as jumbojet and run 2 ac's one 15k and one 13k. 31ft no slides and DW wants it below 70 deg, no problem even in FL in July. The no slides make all the difference on heat and cold.

RE: So confused I was stranded

I agree with the bad connection between batteries or at the load connections. Easy things first....Clean "all"battery connections. If that is not the problem make sure the main battery ground strap and the generator ground strap have a good connection to the chassis.

RE: Hwy 10 vs Hwy 40

You are subject to high winds and big rigs either way. One year heading east late March on I-10 we could only make 50 miles or so before looking for another campground just to much wind, not a big deal if you are retired and not in a hurry. You can always start early in the morning as the winds tend to increase later in the day. Big rigs were slowing down so they were not a problem.

RE: Flexible Coax

If you "roll" it up on a reel instead of coiling it you will have better luck. If it is real cold attach one end to a fixed object when unrolling and keep the cable tight.

RE: Garmin got stubborn

From my experience you can design and load a route, set way points check it all with Google maps and once on your trip if you pull over for gas or food and it (GPS) says "recalculate" then it will sometimes go brain dead and calculate a new route that will ignore your preset directions. The way around that is to cancel your trip (on the GPS) and if you are traveling by a stored route just reload but do not navigate to the start point. It will take you to the next waypoint on the trip and back on the programed route.

RE: Installing updates Win 7

I'm not sure what day of the month it is but my monthly updates are usually 43 updates just short of 1GB same time every month I think on 2nd Thursday. Then I get the small updates every 2 or 3 days. All up dates have been successful so these are not redo's. If you have only had one 143 mb update in a year then you have a problem.

RE: Installing updates Win 7

Win 7 updates can and usually are 900mb or greater per month.

RE: Electricity hazard or not?

Depends the best case is a burn in the mouth/lips/tongue worst case would be electrocuted depending on what he/she is standing on.

RE: shore power gone?

Do you have a cable reel? Brushes are known to wear out. As mentioned check the input voltage to the circuit breaker box.
